Footage of James Maddison's family protection dog emerges after Jack Grealish burglary

Footage of James Maddison's family protection dog emerges after Jack Grealish burglary

A video of James Maddison's ferocious guard dog has resurfaced after Jack Grealish's family were subjected to a traumatic burglary.

Footage of James Maddison's protection dog has resurfaced following the burglary of Jack Grealish's luxury home.

The security and safety of Premier League footballers was thrust into the spotlight once more when Grealish's Cheshire mansion was burgled days after Christmas.

Burglars broke into Grealish's home on December 27 while the England star was playing for Manchester City against Everton.

Grealish's parents and fiancee Sasha Attwood were inside the property watching the match at the time of the break-in. They triggered a panic button that alerted emergency services, with a helicopter, police dogs and officers then scrambling to the property.

No suspects were found at the mansion near Knutsford, although a reported £1 million worth of jewellery and watches were stollen.

The traumatic incident has forced Grealish to reconsider how he protects his family. In an Instagram post he wrote: "My family mean the world to me and nothing is more important than ensuring their safety."

Grealish's England teammate and fellow Premier League star James Maddison might have already shown the 28-year-old how to do just that.

In 2022, Maddison featured in a video produced by Chaperone K9, in which he talked about the benefits of having a protection dog.

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder lives with girlfriend Kennedy Alexa and their son Leo, who at the time of the video was just one. The family decided to buy a protection dog, a Cane Corso Mastiff called Denzel, to ensure their safety.

"You can never be too careful to have that extra level of protection, and Denzel is brilliant," Maddison said in the video.

"I've built up a relationship with Denzel over three years now. Throughout training we would have regular home visits to build up that relationship, and now he's part of the family. Denzel is brilliant with Leo, he realises that he's part of the family."

The video shows Denzel cuddling up to Maddison and young Leo, as well as attacking a dummy intruder.

Maddison was one of the first top-flight footballers to console Grealish when he opened up about the burglary, commenting on his Instagram post: "love ya brother."

Now that the video has resurfaced, Grealish might choose to follow Maddison's lead and get himself a protection dog of his own.
